The School’s curriculum is planned to meet the needs of all individuals. It is designed to promote harmony between those of different races, cultures and creeds, and to provide equal opportunities for all, regardless of sex, religion, disability or class. If you would like any further information about the curriculum offer please contact the Head Teacher.

Small class sizes mean that we know the children well and can ensure that they are making progress in all areas.

We track all children against their projected target and will give appropriate support to any child who is experiencing difficulties in attaining their target.

Geography and History are taught through Linked Learning Units and where possible links are made to other subjects.

EYFS

Our youngest children follow the Early Early Foundation Curriculum which breaks down early development into 7 broad areas. Children are expected to reach their Early Learning Goals in each of the specific areas by the end of the Reception year. 

Discrete Learning

We teach PSHE through the Jigsaw scheme of work, which covers all aspects of personal, social and health education as well as online safety and relationships education. 

We teach RE using the Northamptonshire Agreed Syllabus (revised in 2019) and Understanding Christianity. 55% of our teaching time is dedicated to teaching concepts within Christianity (although these sometimes link to other faiths) and pupils learn for at least 1 hour a week. 

We teach PE using the PE Hub schemes of work. Our PE lessons are delivered by a dedicated, qualified coach. Each year we enter the Northamptonshire Sport festival of sport and School Games competitions enabling our pupils to experience competitive and non competitive sporting events with a range of other schools. These include Football, New Age Kurling, Boccia, Athletics and others. We enter a team into the district Cross Country Championships ever year. All pupils in KS2 have the opportunity to learn to swim until they are proficient to 25m. 

We teach French to pupils in Y3 - Y6 using the ‘La Jollie Ronde’ scheme of work. 

Music is taught using the 'Charanga' on line scheme of work. Pupils in Y3/4 also have a half termly 'African Drumming' experience led by an expert teacher from NMPAT.

IT is taught using the 'Purple Mash' online scheme of work. Pupils have access to a wide range of programmes and applications on their platform which enable the progression of their computing skills including coding. 

Live Learning

In the event of a child not being able to attend school, the school will provide elements of live teaching through its Seesaw portal and Zoom facility.  This will mean that if a child has to self isolate along with their family during the current pandemic, minimal education will be lost through their absence.
